Subject: Handling standalone PCS IRQ

Hi all,

I was working with an SoC that has a built-in DWC XPCS with IRQ support.
However the current driver still uses polling.

I may modify xpcs_create() to try getting an IRQ number from DT, and fall back
to polling if it fails (see the code below). But I don't know how to notify
phylink in the IRQ handler.

There is a phylink_mac_change() function to notify phylink, but it is supposed
to be used in a MAC driver, and it requires a (struct phylink *), not a
(struct phylink_pcs *). Do we need a similar one for PCS?

Thanks.
